An Awesome Upgrade for Any DJ Deck!
There are many excellent DJ controllers and control surfaces out there that take advantage of Serato Scratch's advanced cue and looping functions. On the other hand, there are many more that don't. You don't need a new deck in order to get the most out of Scratch anymore - all you need is a Novation Dicer! The result of a collaboration with Serato and DJ TechTools' Ean Golden (a DJ whose practical approach to DJing and using computer technology has been an inspiration to many of today's hottest up-and-coming DJs), the Dicer extends straightforward usefulness and software integration into Serato Scratch.
The Dicer lets you instantly set cue points, which you can use for hot cues, loops, rolls, and more. Each mode lights the Dicer's buttons up a different color, so you get the instant feedback you need - not to mention more cool lights on your deck. And with the Dicer's "learn" function, you're not restricted to preset functions or even to using Serato Scratch. So, you can use the Dicer to browse your crate, load tracks, trigger effects, and more - in short, anything that will make your show cooler than before.
The Dicer hardware comes in a pair of palm-sized cue-point/looping controllers that fit perfectly on the corner of your turntables - right where you need them! In fact, if you use Technics SL 1200s or similar decks, you can mount the Dicer hardware right onto the deck. Otherwise, you can use Novation's DJ putty to stick them just about anywhere. If you want options, you'll get them with the Dicer DJ controller by Novation!Novation Dicer DJ Controller Features at a Glance:
